Are pets allowed?
No. Pets are NOT allowed on the premises during the Fall and Christmas seasons. We love pets, but please leave your pets at home. We ask this for their safety, as well as the safety of our guests and our farm animals that are not pet-social.
Service animals with valid certification paperwork are welcome at Gaver Farm. All service animals must remain physically controlled on a leash or harness at all times. Service animals are limited to one animal per guest. Guests whose service animal demonstrates aggressive actions toward our guests, animals or employees may be directed to remove the animal from the farm.
